The program, Digital Connectors, now in its second year, helps prepare high school students for a career in information technology. It is held in the Honickman Learning Center on Judson Street in North Philadelphia and in 11 other cities, including Washington, Miami, Denver, and Chicago. Digital Connectors is sponsored nationally by Comcast and in Philadelphia by nonprofits Project HOME and People’s Emergency Center. The 12-month program starts in September. Philadelphia’s Digital Connectors program is taught by Christina Harrison, who also teaches art and technology at Ewing (N.J.) High School. She interviews all prospective students; there were 25 this year, and she selected 10 boys and three girls.
